We’re delighted to been accepted onto the IHR Our Century: thinking back, looking forward events programme.
Our event is called Where were the women? Landladies and midwives holding up community – Somers Town and we will hold an exhibtion and talk in November this year.
This will follow our work on Women in Somers Town – you can ‘hear’ our Talk on Irene Barclay here – this was an interview with Academic Carrie De Sliva who researched Irene’s life and will collaborate with us on this event.
In the meantime, we’re looking for any memories of landladies and midwives.
Do you or anyone you know was a midwife or lived in Somers Town?
Do you remember the landladies?
Please contact us. We’d love to talk to you.
Here are some images we have gathered of women in Somers Town.
